Winners for the 31st Tallahassee International Competition
The FSU Museum of Fine Arts just opened its doors to a new exhibition: The 31st Tallahassee International! The Tallahassee International is an annual juried competition open to artists worldwide with all media eligible for consideration. This year juror’s Carolyn Henne (FSU Art Department Chair and Associate Dean) and Allys Palladino-Craig (FSU Museum Director), selected 64 works by 40 artists for the exhibition out of nearly 200 entrants. Traditionally, a first prize of $1,000 and a second prize of $500 is awarded, but this year the jurors felt a tie for first place was in order! The winners selected to split the combined prize money were Ronen Raz from Israel and J.M. Culver from Minnesota. All of pieces chosen for this year’s exhibition represent a wide array of contemporary work encompassing all art forms from traditional to unconventional, and we welcome all visitors!
The exhibition opened to the public on August 29 and will run through October 2, 2016. Museum hours are Monday-Friday 9-4, Saturday & Sunday 1-4pm. The Museum is located at 530 West Call Street, in the Fine Arts Building. Admission is always free!
